After reviving the Razr name and form factor for a new foldable that launched earlier this year, Motorola is reportedly already hard at work on a new Razr.
A second generation Motorola Razr foldable is reportedly in the works. According to a report from XDA-Developers, this model is codenamed "smith" and features the model number XT2071-4.
This new Razr is said to have several upgrades over the current model. Moto is expected to move to a Snapdragon 765 processor with 5G support and it could also pack in a 2845mAh battery that, while not exactly huge, would be a bit bigger than the 2510mAh battery in the existing Razr.
Motorola is also reportedly beefing up the next Razr's cameras, giving it a 48MP main cam with Samsung's ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor while the selfie camera will be upgraded to a 20MP snapper. To compare, the current Razr has a 16MP main camera and 5MP selfie cam.
The RAM and storage on this new Razr will reportedly be 8GB and 256GB, respectively, up from 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage on the current Razr. And the new model is expected to ship with Android 10 in tow, an update that was just released for the current Razr with several new features for the outer Quick View display.
Speaking of displays, today's report says that the main foldable display and the outer screen of the new Razr haven't changed from the current model that features a 6.2-inch foldable pOLED inner display and 2.7-inch gOLED outer screen.
This new Motorola Razr could arrive in just a few months. During a recent episode of the Reframed Tech podcast (via Android Authority), Lenovo South Africa general manager Thibault Dousson said of the Razr, "There's a new iteration coming up. There's one in September I think, coming up."
That may seem really soon considering that the current Razr launched in late January, but that model was actually announced back in November and was originally scheduled to be released in December. Motorola delayed the launch because demand for the Razr had "quickly outgrown supply predictions", though.
What do you think of this upgraded Motorola Razr 2? Are there any other changes you'd like to see Moto make?
